An interactive museum aimed at children and young people from 4 to 17 years of age, drawing together reproductions of the most representative works in Western art.
Thanks to the exhibit, guided tours and workshops, visitors are introduced to the world of art in a fun, interactive way, using different audiovisual and computer media.
The museum operates in the Pabellón de París, a building dating from 1889 that was declared a Historic Monument in 1986.
It is also present as a cultural institution in Concepción and Viña del Mar.
This museum was officially opened in May 1993, in the splendid building known as Pabellón de París, built in France and used as Chile’s official pavilion at the International Exhibition held in Paris in 1889. Thanks to its collapsible structure, with iron beams and pillars combined with glass panels, it could be brought to Chile once the exhibition closed.
With nearly 20 years’ operation, Artequin has created a museological venue for interactive artistic education focused on establishing a link between art, education and entertainment, sustaining this view on a platform that involves experimentation and creation.
The collection consists of a large display of extremely high-quality reproductions of the most outstanding works in the world, which can be admired and studied through guided tours or workshops where the whole family may participate.
By means of a timeline, visitors can become acquainted with relevant aspects of the various artistic movements as well as important historical events worldwide.
